DISCOVER MINERAL POINT

WHERE ARTISTS CREATE, CONNECT – AND OPEN THEIR DOORS.

Our small town among the Driftless hills offers more than just charm: It also nurtures a rich community of working artists, from potters to painters, woodworkers to printmakers.

A downtown stroll takes you past artist-owned galleries, studios in converted historic buildings, and endless points of creative inspiration. Join us on Gallery Night to see new works and works-in-progress – and enjoy chatting with local artisans about their craft along the way.

STAY A WHILE, AND LEARN WHY WE LOVE MINERAL POINT.

In 2017, Smithsonian Magazine named Mineral Point “One of the 20 Best Small Towns to Visit” – and we couldn’t agree more. Why not turn your Gallery Night visit into a weekend getaway?

Enjoy historic architecture. Indulge in a foodie-worthy culinary scene. Relax in stylish boutique lodging. And if you want to nurture your own creativity, explore the renowned workshop offerings that draw artists, writers, and craftsmen from around the country.
